It’s been awhile since I’ve made fish tacos. I was craving crispy fish and thought this NY Times recipe looked like a good use of the flounder I picked up. Very tasty – we only prepared half the flounder, and turned the rest into a basic Japanese fish curry using curry cubes. Pictured with pinto beans recipe.

I told you I was going to work grapefruit into another salmon recipe. Didn’t get a photo of this one but improvised it last night and we were very happy with it. Served with potato cauliflower puree and broccoli.
My takeaway on this recipe: I enjoy grapefruit with salmon in general, but don’t necessarily need to make this salsa again. Partially because I am terrible at making citrus sections that don’t look ridiculous. The seared salmon is great though, and is a nice neutral leftover the next day (I had some with soba noodles and broth for lunch). Pictured with a half portion of their surprisingly caloric cilantro quinoa, which is fine but too caloric and similar to another recipe that I make for me to want to make it again.
This recipe turned out quite well even if it was just a marinade made from an amalgam of Asian ingredients in the fridge.
I did this to check off my October CL recipe for my sister’s and my recipe challenge, but it’s not a super involved recipe. I liked the flavor of the marinade but my salmon turned out a little dry. This got a little upstaged by the baked potato I made because John loves them and I make them pretty rarely.
